Raphael Varane ‘has been told why he’s been dropped by Erik ten Hag’ and will follow Harry Maguire’s Man Utd example | The Sun
RAPHAEL VARANE was reported told that he was dropped from Manchester United's line-up due to tactical reasons.
The defender was benched for the Red Devil's 1-0 win over Luton Town on Saturday despite Jonny Evans' injury.
Varane, 30, was one of two options for manager Erik ten Hag to pick from to partner Harry Maguire.
The Dutchman however opted to give Victor Lindelof the starting position at Old Trafford.
The move proved to be the right decision as the Swede scored his first goal in three years to hand Man United the win over the Hatters.
Varane has not started for the club since the 3-0 defeat in the Manchester derby.
